Biography of Frank James Ryan Jr...FjR


Born & Raised in The City That Never Sleeps, New York...U.S.A.

Since I began posting my work as a member of an online poetry group in 2006, the mass majority of my daily readership has and continues to come from non-member visitor traffic, via various sources in the Tri-State Metropolitan Area of the Northeast United States, which includes: Central & Southern New York, Southern and Western Connecticut and Northern to Central New Jersey. The supporting venues include: Bookstores, Local and County Libraries, Junior and Senior High Schools, as well as several New York based Community Colleges. In addition, as of February of 2009, my work has been on display with various literary groups and associations throughout the Northeast United States. All of these ''off-site'', education affiliated avenues have been and continue to be the strongest link in my efforts to maintain a healthy readership base. Thank you for visiting...I hope you enjoy my work, as well as the work of the many multi-talented members on this literary site.

The Verve of Passion & Peril(Temporarily out of stock)

Attic of The Beginnings....(Message me if interested) Updates

Of The Nurturing...

Nestled, tight as crowded shelves-
natures sleeping bookends,

the youngest in flock, coveting,
jockeying for advantage, favour,

for maternal warmth, planted seeds,
the suckled breast, moist, hard,

[Hata Bildir]
